    My Verizon iPad Pro dies quickly when sleeping.. Is this likely bc of the cellular component? My regular iPads I can use after weeks of sitting unused and they still have charge but my Verizon one dies in a few days if not charged and used.

    If apps are accessing LTE, if you are in a fringe area that has a bad data connection, GPS is active and being used, etc. A lot of possibilities. Try disabling it and see what happens.

    Also check your battery info under Settings to see what is using the battery most recently.

    Define a few days. You could also disable cellular to test if that would help standby time significantly.

    Mind, if comparing between X-chipset iPad Pros and something like the iPad 5th and 6th gen, note that the 5th and 6th gen have higher battery capacity than the 10" class Pros while only needing to power iPhone chipsets. Among the iPads I've used, the iPad Pro 9.7 had the worst battery life.

    Note, I had WiFi and WiFi+LTE configurations of the iPad 3. Both lasted weeks on standby. Granted, the iPad 3 had a massive 42Wh battery.
